A Medialon Manager Control System is currently used to control and synchronize the entire AV devices installed inside and outside of the Macau Pavilion in Shanghai World Expo 2010.

The 10, 336 cubic meters Macau Pavilion has been especially built for the World Expo in China. It is covered by a double-layer glass membrane and fluorescent screens. Its 20-meter high symbolizes Macau’s return to the Chinese mainland in 1999. The exterior of the pavilion is made of thousands of LED lights which change colors to create a splendid show. The design of the building was inspired by rabbit lanterns, which were popular in southern China in ancient times.

Avant Video Systems (AVS), an israelian-based integrator company, was in charge of the entire Medialon set-up and AV devices integration. AVS is now in charge of supervising the system during the Expo.

Two Medialon Manager Pro allow to control over 130x Sanyo projectors, 130x PCs running Dataton Watchout system, 20x plasma screens, 2x  BINLOOP video servers, 2x fog screens, 5x BSS London Audio processor, 1x PLC system used to control the indoor motorized Rabbit lantern, as well as the entire lighting and sound systems installed in the pavilion.

"We are more than satisfied with Medialon Manager and the Show Control Machine Pro", declares Guy Grosman, Project Manager at AVS and the Technical Project Manager of the Macau pavilion. "The system provides a 100% secured daily use of the show and control of the audio, video and lighting devices", Grosman adds.

"We also deeply appreciate the use of the Medialon touch screen [Rugboard] on site. It really help to easily manage all the devices from anywhere in the pavilion", concludes Guy Grosman.

The Macau Pavilion will be opened to visitors during the entire six months length of the World Expo.
